That inlased flooring is " gob - stopping gorgeous " as my British relatives would say. Being a Canadian, I say that that flooring would be warming to my heart and gorgeous for my eyes to behold as well as warming to my feet on a cold prairie night. If I didn't live in a rental suite, I would ask Santa for one of these gorgeous floors if I lived close to your shop. Forget " sugarplum fairies " tonight I shall dream of your beautiful work of art done with flooring. You are better than Santa's workshop !!!! Thank you for inspiring me with pictures of your beautiful workmanship.

“Inlased” Wood Flooring made by local Family Farm Business
Combining state of the art laser technology with an age old woodworking skill, a totally new kind of hardwood flooring is being produced at Spring Green WI. Custom made, personalized ‘Inlased’ flooring is now possible at a reasonable market prices as the local timber growing business eliminates all the middlemen, brokers, and shippers that take most of the value from other retail wood products.
Inlaying wood with a contrasting material is traditional, but Timbergreen Farm is doing it with computer controlled lasers and solar kiln dried local wood. Flooring strips are made with pictures, words, shapes of real wood inlayed into the solid 3/4” thick flooring. The “Inlased” wood layer is two tenths of an inch thick so the flooring can be refinished over and over, outlasting the life of the home or building. This is real tongue and groove flooring that is permanently nailed down, sanded, and finished. Larger designs are created with a series of flooring strips, with much greater possibilities than a small inlaid medallion or narrow border strip.
A Theme or Thought can be installed for all to see
All of the wood comes from Timbergreen’s world famous management system that uses just the naturally dead and dying trees from their family forest. The smallest possible equipment is used for logging to minimize any disturbance to the forest when a truly mature tree is salvaged. Thin kerf WoodMizer sawmills and band resaws are used to efficiently mill all the lumber. The boards are carefully kiln dried in their own unique solar heated lumber dry kilns. Local artists can design the flooring specifically for each customer and produce the wood flooring in their workshops in Spring Green. Timbergreen’s own installation crew puts down the floor and finishes it in the customer’s home.
From a simple “Welcome to Timbergreen” greeting, a favorite verse or quote, the name of the room, to a wildlife themed wood border, to animal footprints walking in the room, to a personalized wood frame for the fireplace, to an intricate wood picture in an area, to a whole room design, anything is possible with this brand new flooring technology.
The forests at Timbergreen contain 20 species of trees featuring a wide variety of colors and textures. Most designs are implemented by switching pieces of different tree species – for example cutouts from a walnut board swapped with the matching pieces cut from a cherry board. The laser cutting is so precise, the exchanged pieces fit perfectly and the message comes alive in the unique contrasting wood grains. Some of the work is done with high-technology, the rest of the work is done with lots of hands on effort by human beings. No other forest in the world employs so many people per acre of annual tree growth, or shares their business information.
Business owner Jim Birkemeier has presented this business model at four International United Nations Forestry Conferences and has taught the systems to landowners in 20 different countries. Birkemeier’s 5 books and Set of DVDs explain the details of using locally grown and manufactured forest products to build the local economy.
Investigative reporting this year has shown that cheap imported wood products most often come from illegal logging operations that liquidate the rainforests around the planet and the flooring can also contain poisonous glues despite what the labels say. Timbergreen sells their wood direct from the grower to assure the homeowner where the wood really is from and who actually made it. Birkemeier in the past has been Tree Farm Certified, Forest Stewardship Council Certified, and Smartwood Certified, but now just deals direct with his customers who know him.
Their laser inlaying methods can be used to embellish cabinet doors, entry doors, trim boards, picture frames, paneling, and window seats, to mention a few of the opportunities.
“Every day there are a dozen big log trucks that pass by our retail wood products store in Spring Green on Hwy 23, loaded with the best of the best logs from area woodlots, on the road to China for processing. The rest of the forestry profession is full steam ahead into exporting our best logs to the Far East for a quick personal profit that is ‘better than nothing’ in the traditional timber industry,” said Birkemeier. “Our family business is doing just the opposite – keeping all the values of our good trees right here in our own economy and putting local people to work with good jobs.”
Customize your own wood floor!
A person can also do their own design and have the Timbergreen crew create it with their technology, from their natural source of local wood.
Timbergreen Farm is already known for their Custom Blended Hardwood Flooring, combining different species in each floor that reflect the natural diversity of the forest outside surrounding the home. Their own Solar Cycle Lumber Kilns, featuring the daily heating and nightly moisture equalization cycle, produce superior quality boards that are well matched to coexist in mixed species applications. Adding Inlased Flooring sets Timbergreen apart from any competitor on the planet.
Timbergreen Farm was just awarded the Earth Day Prize for the Most Sustainable Products in Wisconsin by the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council. Allowing the forest to grow naturally, using just some of the dead and dying trees, logging and sawmilling with the smallest equipment possible, drying the lumber with renewable solar power, creating good jobs in the local community, and making natural solid wood products people need right here is their goal. The business shares all of their information and methods with other forest owners and small business operators.
One of the most important things about salvaging good local wood is that for every tree grown and used here in our community, the demand to clear cut the tropical rainforests and to illegally log remaining natural forests is directly reduced by that same amount of wood. A small fraction of the fossil fuel energy is needed when wood is used locally, compared to typical wood products in the big stores or online. “Carbon Balance and Climate Change are not even meaningful factors in our future oriented sustainable business system. Just common sense practical stuff is important,” concludes Birkemeier.
Here are more details of our family story:
Our small family forest business was awarded the recognition by the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council as producing the Most Sustainable Products by any company in our entire State! This follows our award for being the Best Small Family Business in Wisconsin. See if you agree: We make beautiful hand-made wood products, employing local people - using just the dead and dying trees on our own timber lands. We salvage the logs using the smallest possible equipment – always improving our forest and never damaging the natural resources of the soils, air, and water. We dry the boards in solar heated lumber kilns, manufacture products in our old dairy barn, and sell natural solid wood items to customers.
Our real wood gifts are Grown and Made in the USA by a small family business – just the opposite of just about all the other stuff in our stores today. When we use a dead tree here, one tree is saved from illegal logging in the Rainforest!
